Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
If your fuel nozzle keeps clicking off while trying to fuel your gas tank then you may have a problem with your fuel tank pressurizing and releasing the pressure. Meaning your tank vent valve may be bad or stuck closed. this is part of your cars emission system and the only real way to check it is have someone with a scanner access the system on your car and check it. A technician can activate the different valves and switches in the system, check it for codes or other problems using a scanner with the proper software for your vehicle. Something you may can do yourself is just look at the hoses going to and from your fuel tank ensuring none are disconnected, collapsed or kinked, this could cause problems also. Hope that helps.

PROBLEM SOLVED-- and it costs.... NOTHING!
I own 2 hyundai accents ( both 2000 models ) with the same issue. While standing at the gas pump raging mad I started experimenting and have found something that works in both cars. Initially it took 2 to 3 fillups using this method before I could pump regularly ( full speed ); but afterwards I can pump regularly for months before it starts shutting off--- I repeat the method once and am good to go for several more months. Here is the method and I hope it works for you: next time you are filling up pump your gas in 50-cent increments the entire time. It won't be perfect and it will shut off a few times but don't worry. So basically, pump full speed, wait a sec or 2 until you see 50-cent of gas go in, stop pumping and wait a sec and repeat. Hopefully after 2 or 3 fillups you will be able to pump gas full speed thereafter for quite some time before it starts shutting off again. Just repeat the 50-cent increment method and this time you should only have to do it once before you can pump regularly again for a few more months. Good luck!

I got a similar issue and I took my Hyundai Accent GL to a shop. They gave me instructions on what to check for when filling. I disconnected one of the vent lines to the right of the fill line and it filled up like it was brand new. Some gas dribbled out, but ran really well. It's connected to a large box in the rear, so I'm not sure where to trace the problem after the box.
